The housing stock in the Dunbar area of Vancouver has undergone significant change in the past five years. Originally a working class neighbourhood with many quite modest homes surrounded by lovely gardens, it is now a neighbourhood that 99% of the people working in Vancouver cannot afford because the replacement homes are built to the maximum footprint and cost millions. Greenspace has been reduced. Included on this website are photos of many (not all) of the disappeared houses.

West 24th and 27th Avenues

3383 West 27th Avenue. Sold in August 2011 and torn down in 2011 or 2012.

This one is nearby, at 3449 West 27th Avenue.  Built in 1942, sold in April 2011, and torn down in 2012.

Here are two photos of 3692 West 24th Avenue.  This large house sat high on the tip of the hill just west of Dunbar Street.  Could it have been renovated rather than sent to the landfill? It was torn down in April or May 2012.

3835 West 24th Avenue.  Built in 1932, for sale in April 2011, and torn down in 2011 or 2012.
